Malty Mini Egg Crunch Bars

Malty Mini Egg Crunch
You've given up chocolate for Lent?... then this recipe probably isn't for you - it contains nearly half a kilo of the stuff! But my goodness it is SO GOOD.

There's been quite a lot of Creme Egg love in the blogosphere over the last few weeks, so not wanting Mini Eggs to be forgotten completely, I thought I'd develop this yummy malty mini egg crunch bar. It's got 3 types of chocolate (dark, milk and white), Maltesers, Mini Eggs and digestive biscuits all bound together with copious amounts of butter and syrup. I don't think I need to tell you it is absolutely yum (as well as very naughty) and I'm sure would go down well at a charity bake sale or birthday party tea.

Malty Mini Egg Crunch
The ingredients listed below make 16 squares in a 20x20cm tin but the recipe could easily be doubled if you are catering for a crowd. Once made they are best kept in the fridge until you want them and will last for up to 2 weeks in an air tight container.

 It's a super easy treat to make and a great one for the kids to help with! My lot always enjoy bashing up the biscuits with a rolling pin...and then there's licking out the bowl afterwards. Luckily there are plenty of bowls to lick!

Why don't you have a go this weekend - it might be detrimental to the diet but when it tastes this good who cares?

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
